Central Europe Internships Fall

Dates: 10 September–7 December 2022
Application Deadline: 1 August 2022

SLOVENIAN, CZECH, SLOVAK AND OTHER INTERNSHIPS

This program caters to students who speak one of a number of “less commonly taught” languages associated with Central Europe, whether that be Slovenian, Czech, Slovak, Croatian, Serbian, Bulgarian, etc. Each of the respective countries belongs to the European Union, which means that students can travel visa-free throughout the EU for the duration of the program.

Circumstances permitting, students will attend a language class twice per week that focuses on developing advanced-level proficiency. In addition, they carry out an internship in the target language that corresponds with their various disciplines and professional interests.
